Derbyan Parakeets

I currently have two Derbyan Parakeets (DJ and Dylan). Deejay has a very unique "crow" when he is happy or excited that we refer to as his "Watuzi". It is impossible to try to describe this sound. Dylan does not do it. Is Deejay the unusual one or is Dylan? Thanks....BB

Re: Derbyan Parakeets

Lots of birds have their own distinct calls or sounds they make. My male cockatiel does this morning call sometimes that my female never even attempts to try and copy. Sounds normal to me!

Thanks. We operate a rescue/rehome in Ontario, Canada so I am very familiar with exotic birds of all types. I was just wondering if anyone else's Derbyan does this? Cheers!

Re: Derbyan Parakeets

I probably have a video that I caught by accident, but it is so random and so quick that it's been almost impossible to catch by choice.

Re: Derbyan Parakeets

Probably not the right way to post a video, but I'll figure it out sooner or later. No Watuzi in this one, but a cheery morning greeting instead. https://t.co/rKYlNYVGza

Re: Derbyan Parakeets

Derbyans are part of the Asiatic species which does include Ringnecks. There is no comparison in the temperament or speech capabilities though, with Derbyans being one of the most even-keeled and sweetest birds I've ever handled. Their speech clarity can rival almost any. Very intelligent. Hands-down, my favorite species.

Re: Derbyan Parakeets

OP - I'm not much help - I've only just learned that Derbyan parrots aren't Moustaches! But I have two IRN's and there are a couple of sounds unique to one of them, I often search youtube videos to figure out if it's learned or by nature.
